Cape Town - The laptops of two top advocates working on the Fred van der Vyver civil case against the police were stolen from their offices over the weekend, Die Burger reported on Wednesday.

Van der Vyver was arrested for the murder of his girlfriend, Inge Lotz, in 2005, but was later acquitted. He successfully sued the police for malicious prosecution in 2011, and but the legal battle over the amount of damages to be paid to him continues.

The office of advocate Barry Pienaar SC was robbed on Saturday night and at the office of advocate Dup de Bruyn SC was robbed on Sunday night.

Both are working on Van der Vyver’s civil case.

Pienaar’s computer, as well as memory sticks and DVDs with copied information were stolen from a secretary’s drawer. He has lost all his files and research relating to the case.

In Du Bruyn’s office, only his computer and a bag with his toga were stolen. He had a backup for his files.

Their offices are on different floors, and the only ones in the building to have been broken into.

A security expert said the robbers had to break open three doors to gain access to the offices.
